    John Suchet writes that 'Beethoven's music is his autobiography', and in this book he demonstrates how knowledge about a work's place in Beethoven's difficult and tumultuous life can help us listen to the music 'with different ears'. He pays special attention to the composer's childhood and teenage years - such as the influence of his grandfather and a mysterious encounter with Mozart at the age of 16 - and presents rarely-published source material which has not previously been available in English.
